A panel discussion, "Behind the Scenes of Overseas Startup Manufacturing Support by Town Factories" (session partner: Ota Ward, Tokyo), will be held within the 9th Main Conference of the Association of Hyperdifferent Fields (March 6-7, 2020 (Friday and Saturday)), hosted by LIVERNESS.

The 9th Main Conference of the Association of Hyperdifferent Fields WEB:https://hic.lne.st/conference/hic2020/

 Ota City, which has a large concentration of "machi-factories" that support the backbone of Japan's manufacturing industry, is conducting a demonstration experiment to create examples of collaboration between local factories and overseas start-ups, with a view to utilizing the Haneda Airport Site Zone 1, which is scheduled to be developed by 2020, together with LEVANES Corporation. This fiscal year, 88 promising manufacturing startup teams from six Southeast Asian countries were identified, and four were selected to develop prototypes. In this session, as a debriefing session of the "Demonstration Experiment Project for Creating Collaboration between Startups and Manufacturing Companies," we will unveil the startups and their prototypes from Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore, and Japan, and talk nakedly about the various challenges and solutions that occurred during the process.

We will have a program of discussions among researchers, start-ups, and large companies from a variety of perspectives, not limited to the themes of this session.
Audience members are invited to attend the conference. Please visit the conference website (see below).
